Take a Chance When People Least Expect It

You heard about this 50-1 bet on Michigan State to win it all that that’s been getting so much attention, right? It got me thinking about how important it is to bet on a long shot once in a while.

Realistically back in December when the guy placed the bet (which could net him $1 million if they win), Michigan State looked like they weren’t even headed to the NCAA Tournament. Now, Tom Izzo is making him look like a genius!

What’s the lesson here? Even if something might look like a long shot, you have to consider all conditions and take a chance when people least expect it. In this situation, at the time of the bet, Tom Izzo had 17 straight tournament bids, 6 Final Fours and a championship to his name. So, you could count on them for their consistency even if it looked like they were having a down year.

How great is it in football when a team goes for an onside-kick right at the beginning of the game? Or, a guy bunts a suicide squeeze in the first inning? Or, a team goes for it on 4th and inches during the first half?

Once you consider everything going on in a situation, you just have to say, “What the heck!” and go for it.

Think about where you can catch someone off-guard and take advantage of a situation. You might be an underdog, but that also means you have nothing to lose.

When was the last time you embraced the unknown by making a cold sales call, or applying for that position you were a long shot to get, or trying to meet someone you’ve always wanted to meet? When was the last time you took that kind of a chance?

Sometimes they hit.

    Thank you so much DOCTOR ODUNGA for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am writing this wonderful testimony in respect of this man. He made all my wishes come true. My boyfriend and I dated for more than 3 years and although we had had so many quarrels we never thought of a break up. One day, he called me over the phone telling me how he is tired of the relationship and cannot see anywhere that we are heading to. Months passed and my boyfriend did not contact me anymore and I did not hear from him anymore and his cell phone was disconnected. I knew I needed to seek help because of the love I have for him. I contacted this great spell caster because i have never contacted anyone before and i tell you that after a week of contact, my ex boyfriend called me and asked to see me and the next morning, he wore a ring on my finger. I am very happy because I am soon going to be a married girl with the help of this great spell caster. I promised to manifest your works to everyone and please contact this man to help you
